Instead of fumbling through massive zipped archives just to listen to the past podcast you want to hear, wouldn't it be awesome if you had every single episode of DV ready to play/download/stream whenver you wanted to? Great Scott! The future is here, my friends. Introducing the DV RSS Archives!
The idea is simple, each year of Distorted View has its own RSS feed. You add each year like you'd add any other podcast to your podcasting app.
Currently, I'm making available 2010-2015 shows available, with the older years coming soon (I want to gauge how taxing all of these downloads will be on the server) This represents well over 1,000 episodes of stupidity!
NOTE: Over the years we have moved servers and switched membership management applications. It is incredibly difficult to test every single link, and I fully expect there to be some broken /missing episodes. When you run across one, shot me off an E-mail and I'll do my best to fix it!
*Current Issues I know of*
Some videos aren't playing / broken links
Butt Fudge Sundae episodes are missing or have broken links
Short URL's (EASY!)
iOS Compatible Apps:
Apple Podcast App
Android Compatible Apps:
BeyondPod (Must Download To Play)
DoggCatcher (Must Download To Play)
For some apps you'll be presented with a pop-up asking for your username and password. In other apps, you enter your username and password in the authorization fields when adding the feed.
Full URL'S (ALMOST AS EASY)
Some podcast apps don't like the short URL's, so you'll have to use the long version. Depending on your app, you'll either be presented with a pop-up box asking for your username and password, or there will be fields to enter your credentials when adding the feed.
When Your Podcasting App Doesn't Work With The Above Methods....
Some podcast apps weren't meant to work with password protected feeds. In some cases you can trick the app into working by adding your username and password INTO the FULL URL. How? After the http:// part you'll enter your username followed by a : and then your password followed by an @ . After the @ you'll continue with the long url (www.superfreaksideshow.com.....)
Example: If you wanted to add the 2014 archive and your username was monkeyshit and your password was 911wasaninsidejob, the URL you would add to your podcast app would look like this:
You're all set!
If Your Username Is An E-mail Address, There's One More Thing...
If your username is an E-mail address, you've got to make a change to the URL so it's accepted.
In our example, let's say your Sideshow username is firstname.lastname@example.org. You must change the "@" to "%40". so the url would look like this:
